military exercises have been happening in the area. >>> a hunger strike at guantanamo bay has quadrupled. 25 prisoners are skipping meals and eight of them are being force fed with a hose that goes up their noses. lawyers for detainees say they are protested because their correspo korans were searched and they are losing hope of ever being freed. >>> in chicago, 50 public schools could be shut down. tens of thousands of kids will be sent to schools that perform better and have more resources. the news has outraged many parents who say the cuts are mainly targeting minorities. >> what do you think about that? >> i think it's a bit ridiculous. >> any part of chicago that's trying to rebuild, the neighborhood is important. if you take them out of where they live, what does that say to the child? >> school officials say they will be able to close schools that are old and largely empty. most of the children affected will begin their new schools in the fall. >>> okay, let's talk about something good, depending on whether are you a miami heat fan. in sports, yes, the streak is still alive. the

in a civilian court rather than a detention center at guantanamo bay, cuba. let's talk it over with the former president of the national institute of justice. nice to have you this morning. >> great to be back. >> so there's been some argument over whether this individual should be tried in a military court or civilian court. what is the argument for trying him here in new york? >> the argument for trying him here in new york is getting a conviction is because i'm cons vinced mr. abu ghaith could not be charged otherwise. >> why not? >> because my fear is he would be charged with a conspiracy and he could not be charged with that. it would be a complete blunder. >> at the same time people are making the argument that he is a, quote, military combatant and should be tried in a military court. >> well, you know you can press that only so far, i think. and, frankly, i think congress has, in effect driven this case into the federal courts because congress has made it so impossible for the administration to get people back out of begana gun tan moe, that it wou

value that should have been held as an enemy combatant at guantanamo bay for intelligence gathering purposes as long as it took to get good intelligence. he, in my view, is a treasure-trove of information about not only al qaeda but maybe things going on in iran. there's an allegation he was being held in iran for a very long time as their houseguest, for lack of a better word. but i fear greatly that we're beginning to go back to the criminal justice model that preceded 9/11. the first time the world trade centers were attacked, you had the blind sheikh case and the prosecutors did a wonderful job in prosecuting the blind sheikh and his conspirators in federal court. but everybody at that time treated al qaeda and terrorism as a criminal threat. after 9/11 we changed our model. the attacks of 9/11 were viewed as an act of war and we authorized military force to go after al qaeda and affiliates. by allowing us to use the law of war model regarding al qaeda operatives from 9/11 forward, we can now hold them as enemy combatants. and under the law of war -- i've been a military lawyer

abugathe left too. >> he'll be tried in manhattan as opposed to taking him to guantanamo, clearly creating a lot of buzz. we'll tackle that with our hot topics panel in a couple of minutes. tim lister, thank you. appreciate it. >>> now this, as we look at the big board here, the dow after some pretty huge news this morning, let's look at the big board. the dow, is it up? let me see. yes it is. 48 points up at 14,377. all of this reacting to a pretty positive jobs report out this morning. but, christine romans, the real headline is what is inside february's numbers. christine? >> brooke, this was a stronger than expected employment report. 236,000 jobs created, 7.7% unemployment rate. that jobless rate fell in part because 130,000 people dropped out of the labor market. they weren't finding the opportunity to keep looking. this is how it breaks down between private sector job growth, 246,000 private sector job growth, 36 months in a row the companies have been hiring. but the government, laying off 10,000 workers, economists telling us, those were most likely school related jobs. let's look

i think guantanamo is where he should have been bought. he gave a 22 page statement, buy was in osama bin laden's inner circle. we could find out and fill in a lot of blanks. bill: meaning he doesn't have to be taken to a civilian court in order to get information. i'm thinking he was in the hands for the iranians for ten years and then the turks and the jordanians and then the americans i mean this guy has been wrung dry perhaps. and perhaps if that's the case you have enough information to get an easy conviction in a civilian trial. >> it's not the conviction i'm worried about. the fact that he was in iran all those years we could find out what the relationship was between iran and al-qaida, how they did work, what cooperation they have. people think because they are surbgs u.n. tpheurbgs s or shiites they have no contact. my concern is getting information from him and also setting the precedent of an enemy come patent being tried in a civilian court. stpho: that is understanding. because you know the president does not -- he wants to close gitmo. he's wanted to do that

administration has in the past. >> chris: chuck? >> well, you know, they don't want to take him to guantanamo. >> they haven't taken anybody to guantanamo. >> exactly. they don't want to it anymore. they don't have to waterboard. it's beyond -- it's surprising, maybe it shouldn't but it's disappointing to think with a high value terrorist like this, there is no middle ground. >> they don't want to is not a gnash ral. it's completely irrational. even you oppose guantanamo at the beginning, it exists. no way it will shut. the administration committed to shutting it has now shut town the office that would shut it down. so if it is here, it is the place you can hold him and question him over years. why do you give him miranda rights? >> chris: question two. north korea, which this week upped its threat, the warnings to levels even extraordinary for north korea. and the new leader there, kim jong un. why do you think the rhetoric is so extreme and how seriously should we take it? >> he could be getting pressure from others and elders in the military surrounding him now and feels the need to show h

, thank you for being here. >> great to be here. >> guantanamo's still open. the president wanted to close guantanamo but congress would not let him. still, though, since he has been president nobody has been sent to guantanamo. terrorism suspects have been killed by drones. a lot of them are killed in combat. a lot of them have been arrested by other countries. but today was only the second time in the whole obama presidency that we got word that a dude got captured. it was one guy in 2011 and there's one guy today and that's been it. the guy today is a terrorism suspect, in this case an al qaeda spokesman whose ties to bin laden include marrying a bin laden daughter. picked up in jordan. now apparently he's in jail a few blocks from here downtown. he's been criminally charged. he's going to be seeing a judge tomorrow morning. how is it possible that this has only happened twice in four years? no captures abroad. >> well, there have been captures on the battlefield but not captures of terrorists in this way because most of them are not crossing the border into turkey as this -- as this ma
